The lights are on
Next week, most of the Game Informer team will be covering E3 from Los Angeles. Before we descend into madness, we're going to celebrate the weekend with achievement hunting, zombies, and some time outdoors.
Andrew Reiner: My weekend begins with that horrible Star Trek game. I don't know why (achievements), but I feel I need to complete it (really easy achievements). Next up on my stack is Remember Me, followed by State of Decay. I'm also going to plow through all of Breaking Bad: Season 5 on Blu-ray. On my flight to E3, I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and reading as many New 52 books as I can.
Jeff Cork: E3 is coming in a few days, in case you forgot. For that week, nearly every interaction I have will be focused around video games. I’m going to spend my brief weekend outside.
Kimberley Wallace: E3 is upon us, so I'm going to be spending this weekend packing and prepping for it. I’m looking forward to surprise announcements, hoping something I wasn’t expecting in the RPG realm pops up. I'm also trying to finish Metro: Last Light before I fly out for E3. Other than that, I'll be watching the Blackhawks game on Saturday. Hopefully, they put away the Kings, so I don't have to check my phone like a crazy girl during E3 for scores. Happiness is the Blackhawks winning the cup.
Ben Hanson: After finishing up the excellent Gunpoint and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, this weekend I hope to dive into State of Decay. I've heard some mixed opinions on the game, but I'm in the mood for some stupid open-world fun and the zombie/survival angle adds a nice twist. Outside of that, I'm going to continue playing Ron Gilbert's new match-three game on iOS called Scurvy Scallywags. I've played it for an hour or so and am really impressed, it is much better and much deeper than I imagined.
Mike Futter: On my six hour flight to E3 from New Jersey, I'll have some time to catch up on some portable titles. I've been meaning to dive back into Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (if only to hear his triumphant, 'I did it!'). Animal Crossing: New Leaf is waiting for me on my 3DS, also. On my Vita (yes, I still have it and I'm bringing it to E3), I just picked up Soul Sacrifice. I hear good things, and I'm interested to see how it plays. Finally, my iPad is home to Warhammer Quest and an as-yet unannounced title that has been captivating me.
I might not get much gaming done at E3, but my trip there is covered.
Matt Akers: I’m finally getting around to playing the Assassin’s Creed series. Just got my copy in the mail for Xbox. I also borrowed a friend’s DS for the summer, so I hope to finish 999 and get started on Pokémon Pearl. I may sleep some, too.
Brian Albert: Our review of State of Decay wasn’t shining, but I’m still going to check it out. Liz might continue her playthrough of L.A. Noire, so if she does I'll hang out and watch her destroy the beautiful city with her, um, spectacular driving skills. If I have extra time, I want to check out Scurvy Scallywags and Gunpoint.
I might try to snag a few easy 'cheevos with Tomb Raider's sucky multiplayer. Also hoping to beat ODST, maybe pick up Castle Crashers, as if my wallet doesn't already hate me enough.
Catching up on season 4 of Arrested Development, wrapping up Metro: Last Light (I've enjoyed it, story isn't terribly memorable and I'm not a huge fan of all the time outside, but still fun), and probably digging up some strategy game to play for a while.
Anyone have a link to that picture of the Enterprise?
I am hoping to start X-Com: Enemy Unknown. I think some RDR sounds good for the weekend as well, also ssf4 arcade edition and a lil bit of blood dragon.
I'm trying to finish at least one 3ds game until Animal Crossing 3ds comes out. Also, trying to finish a few games I have left to play with my xbox to buy a play3 (to play all those great games I've missed).
Playing some more of the Oracle games, particularly Oracle of Ages. Want to be able to find all of the Age exclusive rings before I transfer my file to Seasons.
Also will be playing Ace Attorney Apollo Justice. Need to finish that so I will be prepared for Ace Attorney Dual Destinies (otherwise known as AA5).
finally caught up on my backlog and beat all my games.so this weekend is dedicated to uncharted 3 online and god of war ascension mp.while i waitfor the last of us to be released which i have pre-ordered and paid off.and also have deadpool pre-ordered as well
I'll be hunting for achievements in old games and then waiting for E3.
Making a big dent in Far Cry 3, excellent game with so much to do!
I'm playing GTA 4 for the first time, using it to keep me occupied until The Last of Us comes out.
I'll be playing Remember Me on Saturday, and then possibly Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Sunday. Why Sunday?! Why oh why does it come out on a Sunday?? I can't wait that long.... >_<
Bought Batman Arkham Aslyum today so my son and I could play it this weekend before The last of us comes out next week!!!!
Remember Me, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Serious Sam 3, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection
I am finally free of A-Levels, so have a truly free weekend for the first time in months. Will probably spend it trying to get more into Marvel Heroes, which I'm not sure I like yet.
This weekend, I have started packing for when I travel back to the U.S on Tuesday. I am so excited to go back to the U.S! I'm also DYING to play Animal Crossing: New Leaf, so i've been playing Animal Crossing: Wild World a lot on my 3DS for until I get New Leaf on Tuesday. I've also played some games like Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons, The Denpa Men 2, and Mario Kart 7.
I'm playing Disgaea 4, Zelda: Orcale of Seasons, and eventually Animal Crossing this weekend. I finally finished Far Cry 3 last weekend and I only need to beat the co-op campaign to get 1000 achievement points. That will be my first game I'll get the full 1000 points in so I'm hoping it happens soon.
Probably play some Borderlands 2 and maybe get back to Dead Island.
My wife is away with the military for the next couple weeks so I've kept myself occupied with work. Now it's the weekend I have no idea. Im dying to find something for my 3ds but I'm not looking to drop $40 on a game. Anyone know any older titles that can be fun. I'm strangely interested in those mega man rpg type games. Are they any good???
Replaying Infamous, going through ME2 on insanity, and trying out Warframe.
I'll be playing Dust 514, FIFA 13, and KOTOR. I'll also be eagerly anticipating the Last of Us.
